More about this course

We have been recognised as an endorsed provider from Skills for Care, earning the prestigious distinction as a Centre of Excellence within training and health & social care.

Medications training is required in many sectors including the care industry to ensure that all staff have a basic understanding of the important rules when handling medications.  This course gives you the knowledge to understand the legal framework and how the organisation's policies and procedures reflect the legal framework, for safe handling of medicines, to understand the importance of noting and reporting any changes to individuals following administration of medicines; and managers' responsibilities and the implementation of ongoing monitoring of the care worker.

The information on this course has to be used alongside the policies and procedures of your workplace to ensure that corrective action is taken at all times. This is also ideal for anyone who looks after a family member and is responsible for ensuring they are given the correct dose as well as understanding the contra-indications of a medication.

This course comes with 2.0 hrs (3.0 class) of CPD, although the time to complete the course online may be less than this. Total course time includes 1 hour and 35 minutes of video training as well as knowledge reviews, final test, remedial help and reviewing downloaded material.

The content of this and all our courses has been independently certified as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines and come with a Certified CPD Statement as well as a ProTrainings Certificate and for online courses an Evidence Based Learning statement.
